As the weather finally starts to warm up in the Pacific Northwest and the unofficial start to summer approaches, it’s time to fill that fridge with Elysian Brewing!
Make way for some brews that will keep you refreshed and going back to the cooler all day long. I spend much of my summertime up at my boyfriend’s family cabin near Mt. Baker and we always grab a few packs of Elysian beer on our way up. Nothing beats setting a hammock, sunshine and a beer while relaxing!
Elysian offers three perfect beers for summertime fun (please drink responsibly).
Full Contact Imperial Hazy IPA (8.8% ABV)
Cloaked in a semi-translucent haze, an imposing presence beckons you to come closer. As you do, your nose opens to a tangent of wistful memories — peach season in the orchard, a tangerine tree on a hill, fresh honeydew cold from the fridge, and a vanilla cream soda in your hand.
Space Dust IPA (8.2% ABV)
Celebrating its 10-year anniversary in 2022, Elysian’s #1 best-seller Space Dust balances bitterness with a sweetness of hop flavors, and features grapefruit, mango, and orange aromas with a medium body and a dry finish. Space Dust was my gateway to IPA’s and I haven’t looked back since! Whenever I’m on travel and see Space Dust on the beer menu at a local pub outside of the Pacific Northwest, I feel like I’m home!
Dank Dust IPA (8.2% ABV)
If you’re looking for something a little more dank, the brewery just launched a new, seasonal beer called Dank Dust IPA, which is brewed with proprietary terpenes, providing the beer with pungent, dank, citrusy, earthy aromas that erupt when you crack the can.
Because beer and snacks go hand-in-hand and no dank occasion is complete without the two, Elysian has tapped Action Bronson as its first-ever “Director of Dank” to create recipes worthy of pairing with Dank Dust IPA; perfect for Memorial Day! You can learn more at DankDust.com.
